APM Reports

Even before the pandemic, campus counselling services were reporting an uptick in the number of students with serious psychiatric problems. A 2019 survey found that 66 percent of college students felt overwhelming anxiety during the last year. Almost half felt so depressed that it was difficult to function, and some 13 percent seriously considered suicide.

This collaboration between APM Reports and the Call to Mind project asks: What is a college’s responsibility for helping students navigate mental health challenges, and how well are colleges rising to the task?
